Irwin Schiff R.I.P.

I met Irwin Schiff several times during the 1990s.  He spoke at our Citizens For Legal Reform meetings at Dallas, Texas.  I interviewed him on my own radio talk show two or three times, and he advertised his books in my magazine (the AntiShyster).  He was determined to make a difference and was a “character” of considerable proportions.  We weren’t close friends, but I liked and respected him.

Irwin Schiff was born on February 23, A.D. 1928.  During his life, he was the author of several books including The Federal Mafia, a radio talk show host and, most of all, a warrior who fought the IRS and the Internal Revenue Code.  He was repeatedly charged both civilly and criminally for his anti-tax activities.  He was imprisoned several times (three?) for income tax evasion or other crimes against the IRS.  Prison didn’t deter him.  Whenever he was released, he went right back to fighting the IRS and refusing to pay income taxes.

Most recently, Irwin was convicted on October 24, A.D. 2005, in the U.S. District Court in Las Vegas, Nevada, on multiple counts of filing false tax returns for the years 1997 through 2002, aiding and assisting in the preparation of false tax returns filed by other taxpayers, conspiring to defraud the United States, and (for his own income taxes for tax years 1979 through 1985) tax evasion, and sentenced for the last time, to prison.  Everyone knew it was a death sentence.

Court Orders Defendant to Commit Perjury?

CrackingCode1First published in A.D. 2003, Cracking The Code is one of, perhaps the, premier book on how to avoid paying income taxes to the IRS.  Peter Eric Hendrickson is the book’s author.  His wife is Doreen Hendrickson.  He seems strong.  She does not.

I can imagine that, in court, Mr. Hendrickson would be a formidable opponent but Mrs. Hendrickson might be less focused, less confident, and more easily convicted of an offense.

According to Pete Hendrickson, tens of thousands of people have successfully used the strategy presented in his book to stop paying income taxes.  The IRS has not been pleased.  So far as I know, the IRS has never expressed its displeasure by charging Mr. Hendrickson with willful failure to file, tax evasion, etc.  However, the IRS has successfully prosecuted Mrs. Hendrickson for income tax evasion and caused her to be sentenced to 18 months in prison.

I don’t know what the IRS’s motivation was to prosecute Mrs. Hendrickson, but judging from the following video, her prosecution may have been, at least in part, retaliation against her husband for publishing Cracking the Code.

Bits, bytes, implications and insights seen in recent news reports:


Formerly Fearsome IRS Becomes a “Rodney Dangerfield” Bureaucracy

How strange.  Talk about “politically incorrect”.

Just six week before tax time, Yahoo! Finance published an article entitled “It’s a great time to cheat on your taxes”.

The IRS can’t be pleased.

According to Yahoo!,


If you don’t already cheat on your taxes, it’s an opportune time to start.”


Say whut?!  Yahoo! is actually telling people now’s the time to start cheating on your taxes?!

“Postitive” law for all? “Non-positive” law only for Territories?

It’s my understanding that about half of the “Titles” in the United States Code (USC) are each described as “positive” law.  About half of those Titles are not identified as “positive” law, but, so far as I know, they are not given a distinctive description although it’s usually called “non-positive” law..

Perhaps it would be fair to say that the titles of the USC can be expressly described as either “law” or “positive law”.   If that were true, then, whenever some officer, official or employee of what passes for federal government said “It’s the LAW!,” they might actually mean that whatever authority they’re referring to in the USC was something other thanpositive law”.   If that were true, then what would the government’s reaction be to claims where people said “It’s the positive law”?

It’s also my understanding that Title 26 (which deals with income taxes) of the USC is not identified as “positive law”.

Presidential Timber

In the following video, Congressman Paul Ryan (R; Wisc.) seems motivated by moral outrage.  I think that’s great.

I can see why Mitt Romney wanted Congressman Ryan as his Vice Presidential running-mate in the A.D. 2012 election.  Ryan seems to genuinely give a damn about this country.

I don’t trust any politician.  But I (warily) like Ryan.

In truth, the Republicans migh’ve won the presidency in A.D. 2012 if they’d run Ryan for President and Romney for VP.

We can expect Ryan to contend for the Republican nomination for President in A.D. 2016.

Changing Times?

In the aftermath of the September 11th, A.D. 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, a number of government spokesmen crowed that “this changes everything.” What they meant was that, in light of the 911 attacks, we could no longer afford the protections of the Constitution and must instead embrace a growing police state.

Although the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda was officially blamed for the attacks, much of America still believes that 911 was a false flag operation conducted by, or with the complicity, of our own government. Regardless of whoever is truly responsible for 911, the resulting police state (and correlative distrust for government) continued to grow for the next 13 years.

A.D. 2013 was especially scary as numerous domestic government agencies were exposed as having ordered over 2 billion rounds of ammunition, plus rifles, handguns, body armor and even submachine guns.   It was virtually impossible to explain these purchases except as evidence that the US government was preparing for violent conflict with the American people. The forces of fascism were either on the march or terrified by growing public distrust.

However, in the midst of our growing police state, a number of events took place in the past five or six weeks that seem surprising when taken individually and almost astounding when taken together.

I’ve known Michael Ellis for about 20 years.  He’s articulate, intelligent, and a man who really loves the Good LORD.

I’ve previously published one of Michael’s documents on this blog at:

If I were crosswise with the IRS, and if I thought I was in over my head and unable to stop the IRS on my own, Micheal Ellis is the man I’d call.

Michael is tonight’s guest.  The program should be fun and enlightening.

I hope you’ll tune in.
